Fusion Lap Dance released on Funny or Die

September 3rd, 2014

My lovely (all the time) wife and (sometimes) co-writer and I unleashed some absurdity onto the world via this Funny or Die video. It started as one of those random jokes you have in bed in the morning and got all the way to produced short with the help of Nonetheless Productions and my awesome producer and friend Gorav Kalyan.

Check him out acting alongside the ever hilarious Charlie Saxton in the link below, and vote us funny if you like it!

OPERATOR wins Sloan Fast Track grant at LAFF

June 30th, 2014

Last week my producer Felipe Dieppa and I got to take part in Fast Track, a film financing market at the Los Angeles Film Festival to pitch OPERATOR to almost 60 industry executives. We had a terrific time, got very positive responses to the project, AND Film Independent selected us for the Sloan Fast Track production grant!

Doron Weber from the Sloan Foundation had this wonderful thing to say about OPERATOR – “We are delighted to partner with Film Independent for the seventh year and to make the 2014 Sloan Fast Track award to Logan Kibens’ Operator, a smart, contemporary comedy about a programmer who learns, at the risk of losing his wife, that technology must serve humanity,”.

Great review of HARMONY on Agnes Films

March 7th, 2014

HARMONY is complete! It was a fun quick post-production process with producer and star Dawn Davis and the rest of our collaborators. We’re gearing up for a cast and crew screening later this month, and into a festival run. Dawn sent a screener out to Agnes Films for an early review – a website named in honor of one of the great living filmmakers, Agnes Varda – and you can read their very kind words and review here. There aren’t really any spoilers, just some of the most effusive writing on a performance by a cat that I’ve ever read.

MAESA music video now online!

June 24th, 2013

The music video for MAESA’s “The Fall” that I directed is now online and viewable on YouTube. This was such an incredible collaboration and fun shoot – from jumping on a trampoline in front of a green screen, hiking to rock waterfalls, shooting underwater and using the Phantom Flex (1,000 frames per second…). Maesa is an incredible artist, musician and person.

Check out the video here –

OPERATOR at the Sundance Creative Producing Summit

August 8th, 2012

I just got back from a great weekend at the Sundance Resort, representing our script OPERATOR at the Sundance Creative Producing Summit. It was an intensive weekend of meeting incredible people, from advisors to other fellows, and hearing about some amazing projects. I can’t wait to see them realized and on the screen.

I was so busy and in the moment that I forgot to take many pictures, but I couldn’t pass up this photo of a weird naked alien soap dispenser. Feel free to composite it into your next ’70s era Sci-Fi farce -
